This should be country or world wide.

kida are too clever to keep their knees together for this. they will just get more (backstreet) abortions, drink all kinds of weird muti's to miscarry. boys would deny paternity, and that would lead to who new debacle.
it sound really cool, but kids are way too wiley to get caught with that trick.
kids will do what they do. and i blame media, songs, soapies, and predominently parents, for this pandemic of teen pregnancies. in highschool musical teenagers are smooching, going out on weeknights, and sex is very much implied. on gossip girl, teenagers are shown having sex, doing drugs, getting pissed.
when i was in school, i wasnt even allowed to go for sleepovers, nevermind have a boyfriend. and im eternally gratefull for that. i managed to hand on to my innocence till in my twenties, and have never had a one-night stand in my life. and im proud of that.

i have a theory, or rather an idea. that each and every baby must be sterilized, and if you want kids, you must apply to have the sterilization reversed. just like when you want to adopt, you have your life picked apart, to make sure you can look after this kid. i think the same should apply for if you want to spawn. its easy to get pregnant. but not so much to raise a balanced, healthy and loved child.

Sounds like something a fundamental xtian would have come up with.... You're talking about complete and utter control of people by whoever might be in charge? Having no choice whatsoever over your body as a woman (or man)? You think a xtian leader will allow you as an atheist to have child regardless of how capable you might be as a prospective parent? Eish.... (aside from the fact if you sterilise a baby it may have implications on their development during puberty)


I think the carrot on the stick might work - the carrot possibly being a bursary allocation or working learnership somewhere, plenty young people just need to have something to focus on in the future to prevent them from doing something dumb now.

they will continue to have sex. they will just get rid of the fetus to make sure they get the reward.

human beings have shown, and have continued to show, that they are incapable of sustainably living on this earth. we are grossly over-populated, with more and more living below the breadline, depending on governments to bail them out. orphanages are bursting at the seams. i think if we knew how many abortions are performed daily, we would be ill.
and who-ever are to head up population control, wont care what your religion is, they would care if they can make money off you.
many people will be sorely heartbroken to know that they cannot have kids, because they dont meet some criterion, but then again, what is the use having a child, and not being able to offer that child any and all the world can offer it.
i donate my eggs to people who cant have kids, and both my DNA and theirs are scrutinized and tested for disease and abnormalities. thus, you can even be sure that the child you bear, is going to be healthy, and not end up with mental illness or something of the like.

the world is moving toward machines doing everything. where will people find work, when a machine does the job of 20 men? how will they eat? how will they send their kids to school?

the world is filled to the brim with stupid people. people live for the now, and dont think about future actions. the world needs visionaries, to think ahead, and do something now.
the world is up in arms about global warming, and putting things in place now to try and halt or slow it down.
what is being done about humans breeding like rabbits?

I agree with Faerie. A bursary, a goal, for something better. You have to change the mindset of people, so do it in a non - conflict way.

Maybe even take it further, into mid twenties or something. There are to many of us and the parents should be more capable at that age.
